Collections singletonMap() method in Java with Examples

The singletonMap() method of java.util.Collections class is used to return an immutable map, mapping only the specified key to the specified value. The returned map is serializable.

Syntax:

public static  Map singletonMap(K key, V value)

Parameters: This method takes the following parameters as a argument:

  • key – the sole key to be stored in the returned map.
  • value – the value to which the returned map maps key.

Return Value: This method returns an immutable map containing only the specified key-value mapping.

Below are the examples to illustrate the singletonMap() method

// Java program to demonstrate
// singletonMap() method
// for <String, String> Value
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class GFG1 {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
        throws Exception
    {
  
        try {
  
            // create singleton map
            // using singletonMap() method
            Map<String, String>
                map = Collections
                          .singletonMap("key", "Value");
  
            // pritning the singletonMap
            System.out.println("Singleton map is: "
                               + map);
        }
  
        catch (IllegalArgumentException e) {
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
